My name is Ashphord Jacoway (yes like Ashford and Simpson). As an Actor, I am a shapeshifter. Many looks and one great personality! I have worked all over the country, and started my training in Theatre. For the past two years I have been building my resume and creating a place for myself within the independent film industry. It brings me joy to work on projects that have passion and heart, where everyone onset is invested. I feel my resume truly reflects that.
As of late I have been taking Voice Acting and Hosting workshops to broaden my awareness as an actor. I write and perform solo shows through out the city when I need a creative boost. So, In short, here is a little bit about me:
I am Ashphord. Awesome. A mover and shaker. An activist speaking freely. Shapeshifting. Changing, style, looks, hair, lips, but not my mind. Determened, yes, poetic, yes. Speaking in tounges long forgotten. If you cannot handle the new, the fresh, the bright, the door is to your right, behind me. For I soar and dream things others do not dare to breathe.
Are You Ready To Breathe Me?
For We are Destined to change Film,
Lets create art and get some good work done!!
